Lessons from Keeping a Journal & The DayKeeper Giveaway

During this time of the year, most of us already have a journal in hand, ready to start the year. ย I can’t even believe some people go into great lengths to collect all sorts of journals?!!? Well, honestly, I can’t judge you because I also do the same thing with brushes, papers & illustration books. ๐Ÿ™‚

What probably attracts us to having a date book is that it helps us organize our life! ๐Ÿ™‚
Since we also have space to put events in it, we’re compelled to make new memories with friends and loved ones. ย There are so many journals in the market but I think, what sets The Daykeeper apart is its ability to inspire.

Lessons from a Journal

Personally, Kat San Juanย has inspired me to see more of the world. ย We met last year when she revealed to us that she was working on this personal project called The Daykeeper. ย It’s a compilation of her travel photos for the year but it’s also functions as a journal.

Daykeeper 2015 giveaway

This year, I again found myself caught up with so many tasks & found out that Kat was on a month-long trip to the U.S. to gather content for the second installment of The Daykeeper. ย “What am I doing with my life?”, I asked. ย I mean, work will go on forever and I can probably press the pause button and take time to live instead of being obsessed with making a living.

Daykeeper You Make Beautiful Things

The Daykeeper is also filled with little reassuring reminders. ย Just what we need to get through our day, week, month or year!

DayKeeper Giveaway

It’s also filled with Kat’s personal travel photos–a constant reminder for all of us to continue exploring our country and the world we live in. ๐Ÿ™‚

Daykeeper Travel Pages

Last October, before I left for Europe, Kat, Aleyn & I met up at this colorful cafe. ย She asked me if I could write some phrases on paper for the wrapper. ย I just thought I would be seeing three words on the cover. ย I made multiple versions of it and got quite shocked my entire handwriting ended up becoming the wrapper of the whole thing!ย Daykeeper with Calligraphy

Anyway, congratulations Kat on the success of the Day Keeper! ย  May you continue to inspire more people to travel, be more grateful, invest in memories and seek inspiration wherever they may find them! ๐Ÿ™‚

Thank you as well for setting aside for our blog what might already be the last copy of The Daykeeper 2015!

I have always been obsessed with organizing and pretty-fying stuff in my room that it happens to be exploding with all sorts of DIY organizers. LOL. I like having planners too that isn’t all about scheduling our tasks but also inspiring us to carry on and see the world. It also looks like an awesome way to record memorable times. This Daykeeper would be amazing especially that one of my resolutions this year would be to travel more. ๐Ÿ™‚

The Daykeeper date book is such a gorgeous piece of work! I love how it’s tailor made for DIY memory keeping, not only is it a pretty little thing to keep all your thoughts and photos, it also helps you keep organized and grounded for the year. I’ve been after one since I found out about it but I just didn’t have the money to get a copy. Hopefully this time I’ll be lucky haha! I want to win Daykeeper date book because I would love to have something to keep all my dreams and memories for the year ahead in one place! ๐Ÿ˜€

I used to write a lot but words have been dwindling away from me these past few years. Maybe it’s busyness from everyday work, studies… Maybe it’s the lack of exposure to truly inspiring things, stories and works.. The way I’m keeping memories the past few years is via social media, yes thank you Timehop for the throwback posts. But I know in my heart that what I post online is not even a fifth of what my day was and what I was thinking about. I would like that to change. I hope to be inspired this year, to bring back that child in me that just wants to write about anything and everything starting with Dear Diary, Today I… And even though I wouldn’t win the Daykeeper (it would suck but that’s life I guess), this comment might just be that one step to that change. And for that, thank you! ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m a planner kind of person, but starting this year I want to change, I want to write about the things happen without planning, the joy and sadness of the unexpected. I write everywhere. It would be nice to have the daykeeper, it’s something where I can express my feelings more and understand a little more of myself. Memories will be well kept and treasured with it. Thank you for this chance, more power! ๐Ÿ™‚

The Daykeeper Journal is the perfect one for me, I think, because it’s the perfect avenue that creatives like me need to express themselves through whatever craft–be it writing, photography, visual art, or all three even–with the added functionality that keeps us grounded and organized. <3 This year, I'm trying to give more time for art and travel so it will be grand if I got to win The Daykeeper to put in my memories and adventures! Thanks for this giveaway! ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m a tech event junkee and community manager. I travel to a lot of different places to attend events and conferences in my craft and often share it all with the geeks in my community when I come home. Having a journal this inspiring, won’t just keep everything in check, but it’ll remind me about all the other places I have yet to explore and to keep an open mind about the opportunities that await me this year ๐Ÿ™‚

I came across the lovely daykeeper planner on Facebook, January of 2014. And from that time, I marveled at how wonderful it is to have all the things I like in one book. Planner-slash-journal-slash-devotional. Indeed, a complete package! But sadly, I wasn’t able to buy the planner last year because I don’t have the enough money to purchase one (since I’m still a student and I depend only on my allowance).So I decided to save, hoping that by 2015, I can already afford to buy a copy. Last December 7, 2014, I sent an email to their page yet until now I haven’t receive any feedback. I also tried to order from Urban Paper Boutique and Heima. Unfortunately, I was informed that it’s now out of stock. Poor me! Yet here I am trying my luck. I’m so thankful for this chance and I’m really really hoping I’ll be the one to have that last copy. ๐Ÿ™‚

I came across the lovely daykeeper planner on Facebook, January of 2014. And from that time, I marveled at how wonderful it is to have all the things I like in one book. It’s not like other planners. It has pretty photographs in it, doodles, blank pages to fill, and quotes and bible verses to live by, blank pages to fill, and quotes and bible verses to live by. Planner-slash-journal-slash-devotional. Indeed, a complete package!

I know everyone deserves to win but what sets me apart from them is that I’m Christian trying to be more intimate with God. Having this book with bible verses in it will guide me in planning my endeavors so that my plans will be aligned to His will. ๐Ÿ™‚ Blessings!

2014 was all work and no play for me. I achived a career milestone but sadly, I did not have the time to take vacations, read books, pursue my hobby which is painting and yes, i even forgot to pay for the 2015 datebook that i ordered online (i had regrets until this day). For 2015, i want things to be different, i want to create memorable moments and pursue doing the things i love, and i think the datebook would be the perfect friend which will remind me each day to take some time off for myself and enjoy life. I dont want to have regrets anymore ๐Ÿ™‚
